we are pleased to announce you the event Μεγίστη καὶ ἀρίστη νήσος-First International Symposium on Archeology of Sicily, to be held in Sao Paulo from 3 to 5 April 2019. The event is promoted by the Laboratory of Studies on Ancient City and by the Museum of Archeology and Ethnology of the University of São Paulo-Brazil (LABECA-MAE-USP).
Registration (available HERE) is open until March 6th.
This meeting aims to stimulate new research challenges and widen the field of scientific inquiries, and for this reason the studies of Sicily from the proto-historical (13th-8th century BC) to medieval period will be presented. In fact, there are few studies, developed in Brazil, which deal with history of Sicily in later eras to that of the Greek foundations (8th-4th century BC). Therefore, we believe that it is important to show the advances of the archaeological studies of different historical periods, in order to encourage new possibilities of studies in Brazil.
Take a look at our website and, please, let us know if you have any question.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Best Wishes, Organsing Team
